At 25 minutes past ten on Apr. 8 1835 I said I wont [sic] go with CCC. He huffs a note written in warmth of gratitude- such as would have gladdened one to receive ceive. Still a recollection of my doom of being misun- derstood & the offences at the ~~love~~ union folks (w'h [sic] they do bear well) my being of no consequence, induced [page break] me to feel the note of no importance & not to be seen. So you see my con- fidence in our sympathies is imperfect - "And so it ought you say. Yes I know how little I can ~~depend~~ offer to the sympathies of the learn ed & [actors?] on the scene w'h [sic] God ordains to be decor- ated & improved. Yet I can recollect, with the most of earthly comfort, that my poor weake [sic] Aunt used to express her confidence in [page break] my disinterestedness when she was going to be mar- ried the second time & tell her aged Suitor he had nothing to fear from my selling all her goods by a deed. "Few & humble your means of fame." True but invaluable & I'll not touch to go & di- vert your transcendental meditations: God grant them profitable. MME
